Skylight Window Treatments for Chicago Homes

October 22, 2018

What Chicago homeowner doesn’t love the look and feel of sunlight streaming in from their skylight windows? Skylights add that extra touch to your home that other types of windows can’t provide.

Put the spotlight on your skylights with window treatments made for specialty windows. Our recommendations are skylight shutters and skylight window shades.

Skylight Shutters in Chicago


Chicago plantation shutters are a fantastic option for skylight windows. Interior shutters blend form and function in a way no other window covering for skylights can. Just look at the many benefits shutters provide:

  • Streamlined, elegant looks - Take our word–gaudy, overdesigned window treatments don’t match skylights. With shutters, you can pick from an array of natural wood tones and neutral stains, the type of materials that seamlessly blend into your window trim and walls. Plantation shutters have that classic look which gives your skylights an elegant touch.

  • Easy maintenance - Most homeowners with skylight shutters leave the louvers tilted slightly open all day, which means they don’t have to bother with adjusting them. But if you need to adjust them, it’s simple to do so using a reach pole that we’ll provide you with without charge!

  • Control over light and heat - Skylights receive more light than other window types, so having the option to control the amount of light the space gets is a big plus. You can adjust plantation shutters to fit your needs, from completely open to complete darkness. Polywood® shutters also protect against heat transfer better than other window treatments on the market.

Skylight Shades for Chicago

Shutters aren’t the only option for skylight windows. We also enjoy seeing custom shades in Chicago skylights.

  • Minimal hassle - Bypass the hassle of pulling cords and the sight of cords dangling with motorized shades. When you put your shades on a track system, they’ll stay tight against your window. And if your skylights are within reach, opt for top-down/bottom-up roller shades to control by hand.

  • Go as thin or thick as you want - Get skylight shades in a variety of styles, ranging from thin sheer shades that let in lots of light to blackout shades to reclaim your space.

  • Nearly endless color and style options - Skylight shades are available in a large color palette, with lots of fabrics to match your style, as well as accent and hardware options to fit your needs.

  • Control your lighting - Shades help you block the harshest light that comes through your skylight windows while still allowing light to come in. You’ll have total control!
